Argentine striker Sergio “Kun” Agüero said that he arrived at Barcelona “with the expectation of playing alongside Leo (Messi)” and confessed that when he found out that his friend would go to Paris Saint Germain “it was a moment of shock”.
“Let’s be honest. What player does not want to be at Barça? I would say that most footballers would like to wear this shirt, no matter how good or bad Barça is. I arrived with the expectation of playing with Leo and that a good team would be put together, which is what the club was trying to do, ”Agüero said in an interview with El País.
The former Manchester City player, recovered from a tendon injury to his inner calf in his right leg, could make his debut this weekend in the LaLiga match against Valencia at the Camp Nou.
“When they called me I thought: I don’t care what they pay me. I’m doing well and I’m going to help the team as much as I can, ”he said.
Asked how he found out about Messi going to PSG, Agüero revealed: “It was a moment of shock. He was very bad. When I found out I couldn’t believe it. That day I went to see him at his house. And, because of my personality, since I didn’t see him well, I tried to make him forget what had happened. I saw that he was half off and was trying to distract him. I was telling him about my Esports team. And the things we were doing ”.
After the friendly match on Wednesday against Cornellá, in which he scored a goal, “Kun” Agüero has many possibilities to play “a few minutes” in the clash against Valencia for the ninth date, as published today by the newspaper Mundo Deportivo .
